OK people, Ever see the movie the BLOB???? I took my two picnics out of the brine today, and instead of pouring off the water brine (I used POPs recipe and it stayed in for 15 days), I poured off this brown sludge that reminded me what Steve McQueen was running from!! It was really strange! No bad smell, no scum or any other type of indicator that shows it had turned bad.
I've never heard anyone report this....Is it normal?
Does anyone know what this might be? The meat seems fine, no indication of anything out of the ordinary. Did I not have enough water? Is this protein coming out of the meat??
